FIRST DESCHUTES POWER
PLANT IN OPERATION.

Water I'ump to bo Installed
with (Irentor Capacity.
Last Wednesday evening Bend's
fititt electric limits were turned on,
und the lultliil water power to be
harnessed from the Deschutes
Hivcr was put to practical use.
Bend now haii In successful opera
tion not only the fluent electric
plant in Central Oregon, but the
local system in every ret pec t I as
thoroughly equipped as any plant
of even larger capacity in the state.
There are now over five miles of
K)le wire strung uon 85 jwlcs and
unothcr mile for connections with
The readiness with which the
business men have contracted to
wire their buildings is proof that
Bend will be the best lighted city
anywhere in Central Oregon.
Hqulpracnt has arrived for 10 arc
lights which noon will be placed 011
the principal corners, and It is un
derstood that in n short time a
lighting system will be devised
foi the residence districts.
It is understood that in the
neighborhood of $40,000 has been
expended by the Bend Water Light
flc Power Co. in the construction of
the dam and power plant, exclusive
of the installation of the very con
siderable outside wiring equipment.
Mfcny delays and difficulties were
encountered and overcome since
the inauguration of construction
last October, freighting cement
too miles at two cents a pound
made one, not to mention the dif
ficulty of securing Jubor in the carl)
stages of the undertaking.
The equipment which has been
installed to date consists of a 30
Kilowot exciter generator and a
loo-Kilowot Bullock generator.
The water wheel develops 364
horsepower, although the gener
ators require but 135. The plant
demands the services of two men,
operating as it now is.
The statiou building is also ex
pected to house the pumping plant,
which will be installed as soon as
the new a-stcp sooo.gallon-pcr-min-ute
pump arrives. This apparatus
will double the capacity of the pres
ent water system, and by employ
lug the pump now in use the capac
ity will be trebled.
There nre already more than 375
lights in use, and cs soon as the re
mainder ol the buildings for which
contracts have been taken can be
connected up there will be over
For the present the power will
be on from 4:30 p. in. until mid
night, and from 4 to 8 a. m. Thus

Railroads Announce Dates for Accept

Hugh O'Kane returned from
Portland last week and speaks very
optimistically concerning the con
struction woik between the Colum
bia River and Dend.
"The railroads have notified the
merchants that they will receive
consignments of freight as far as
Mctolus after February 1 t,
said Mr. O'Kane. "Hcnd mer
chants will then be able to route
their supplies in by Mctolus, thus
making about a 48-mile haul from
the railroad, instead of 100 miles,
as is now the case. This probably
will mean the reduction of existing

The Basic Problem
THE GREATEST OF ALL PROB
LEMS TO THE QENERAL PUB
LIC IS THE BREAD
AND BUTTER PROBLEM
ITNnU.STRV alone will not solve the bread and butter
II problem; but If one Inyi by something, however
small, from the fruits of his Inriuktry, he has found
the solution of this problem. To the man with a bank
account opportunities arise, which would otherwise be
beyond his reach. You have often heard n man say, that
were It not for his family responsibility he would'do this
or that. With n bank balance to his credit the bread and
tutter problem Is solved for the nrcseut. and he is there-
i able to make it a less Important problem In the future.

Returns from 14 precincts, wired
in at a late hour this afternoon,
indicate that the county has gone
wet by at least Coo majority. I'ratik
IJIklm probably has been defeated
for Sheriff by T. N. Balfour of Fife.
It is said by about 25 votes. Print
villc gave Ilalfour that many more
votes than it did Klkitm. It is
understood that the vote stood
practically a tie at the completion
of the Princvlllc count at 2 p. m.
The election may depend upon the
vote of Ashwood. Wires arc down
aud returns from thnt precinct can
not be had. It seems generally
conceded, however, that Ilalfour
stand the best chance. '
Outside reports indicate the
state has gone wet by 8000 to
10000. Home Rule wins by about
the same number of votes.
All county division bills arc de
feated. In the first Co votes
counted in Princvlllc there was 1
for Deschutes. Madras had 3
votes for the new county.
Stark apparently has a slight
lead for Circuit Judge. I.aflcrty
wins for congress by 1000. WeM
probably wins the Governorship by
a narrow margin.

The Oregqn Trunk Railway
Company has filed at the U. S. Land
offices both at Lakevicw and The
Dalles railway right-of-way maps
covering a distance of 58.28 miles
from near Bend to a point west of
Riley, in township 23 south, range
25 east. The right-of-way is that
of the Hill east-and-west road,
whose location has been completed
from Bend easterly at least as far
as Riley, and probably consider
ably further. It is the general
supposition that this line eventu
ally will connect with the Burling
ton system, affording direct eastern
outlet for Deschutes timber prod
ucts. Those familiar with the
northwestern railroad field con
tinue to predict that this south
eastern road, branching from the
main line at this point, will be un
dertaken next summer, unless
something serious and unforeseen
occurs to upset eastern money mar
kets, requiring even a further cur
tailment ol new construction.
The Harriman construction in
the Deschutes canyon has reached
such a stage of completion that now
but 3C0 men are 'working where,
a few months ago, nearly 5000 were
employed. About 1200 men are
working on the grades between
Madras and Bend. This number
constantly is being lessened as the
work nears completion.
One result of the laying off of
railroad laborers as the construction
progresses is the increased ease
with which labor may be bad all
through the interior. An instance
of this is seen at Roberts Bros, mill
at Gist; a short time ago it was al
most impossible to secure enough
labor, while now the difficulty lies
more in finding employment for the
